    I made this today and it was delicious. I doubled the recipe and put in a 9 x 13 pan. I also used a mix of frozen blackberries, raspberries, cherries and blueberries and served with whipped cream. It was raved about at our family dinner.

    Delicious! I love recipes like this that are not only quick and easy, but yummy too. I used fresh blackberries and old-fashioned oats instead of quick-cooking oats. The juice was a little runnier than we like, so I think next time I will increase the amount of cornstarch. I baked this in a 6"x9" baking dish for 25 minutes. Served warm with vanilla ice cream...yum!

    Do not use cornstarch with lemon. Gave it an unpleasant taste using frozen wild blackberries. Other than that taste good.

    The flavor of this crisp was very good but it was way too runny. After looking at other recipes I question the amount of cornstarch. Is one teaspoon correct? I had 4 cups of berries so I doubled all the ingredients and added 1 tablespoon of cornstarch. I baked it a little longer to get to the bubbly filling part. To me it just didn't get thick enough. I'm going to try again with the exact recipe and hope it works. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Update: There is nothing wrong with this recipe. The problem was with my oven. I made it over again and used my neighbor's oven. I made it exactly as posted and it was great. I'll definately make it again as soon as I get a new oven.

    I was looking for a topping for my fresh picked blackberries...It was delicious!! Will use topping recipe again. In my blackberry mixture, I only use sugar, flour and a bit of butter. Haven't ever used cornstarch, water or lemon juice. Loved the topping!! YUM!!

    We really enjoyed this recipe. Believe it or not, I could NOT find frozen blackberries so I used a mix of frozen berries instead. It worked out great and it was so good we were eating it out of the pan. Thanks for posting a keeper! Made for PAC Spring 2009.


<p>I love cooking for my family, but I don't exactly find it relaxing. I do it for the end result...something good to eat! I'm always trying out new recipes, which is why I love this website. It saves me a lot of time trying to figure out if a recipe is going to be worth making or not. My kids are 10, 8 and 6 years old, and are just starting to appreciate good food. I try to involve them in the kitchen as much as I can. My 6 year old loves to cook with me and is actually very good at helping. My 10 year old makes breakfast (toast) for his sisters in the morning when I'm too tired to move. And my 8 year old is always willing to stir anything that needs stirring. For some reason, (despite the fact that there are a million recipes I want to try) I have a really hard time trying to figure out what to make for dinner, even though my husband would be happy eating pizza every night! <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
